New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson defends Chicago Bulls forward Patrick Williams.

Chicago forward Patrick Williams left Thursday night’s nationally televised game against New York with 9:42 remaining and did not return due to a left wrist injury, the Bulls announced. The second-year forward finished with six points and two rebounds in over 16 minutes of action.

Williams, selected fourth overall in the 2020 Draft, has seen his offensive opportunities diminish and efficiency skyrocket in his second season for the resurgent Bulls. Chicago entered the game with the team’s first 4-0 start to a season since the 1996-97 campaign.
